    I found about 20 of these things in my sump and in my overflow. Does anyone have any ideas what they are? I thought they might be some sort of nudibranch but they dont move and they're only about 1/2 in.

    Ok so I've been running my 10 gallon for about 1 year and I recently added a piece of live rock with this crab hitchhiking on it. Not sure what species I think Mithrax? But anyway he is quite nippy when it comes to privacy, this is why I'm worried I'm buying an orange spot goby soon for sifting...

    Hey everyone! Okay so I purchased some new live rock yesterday (about 20 pounds). And when I got home I today there was a clear anemone poking out of the rock. I'm unsure if I should be worried or not. I would post pictures but I'm too new :cry:

    So tonight I go to look at my tank & notice that I have an extreme amount of pods in the refugium. Nothing that really surprised me because I added pods maybe 5 months ago. But it is weird because I thought that had all disappeared, also this explains why my dragonet has stopped being so happy...

    Hello all. I bought my first coral today (green button polyp) and everything looked great until I turned off the lights. About an hour after i turned the tank lights off I looked in to see 3 or 4 of these guys crawling out of the polyps. Im thinking they are either bristleworms or fireworms...

    Hey guys, came across a new hitchhiker tonight. It is a small star and I wonder if it is an ASTERINA star but I can't really confirm. Looked on Xtralreef and wet web media and the little guy doesn't seem to look like one of the "oddly" shaped star like the two sites indicate although they can...

    Today i noticed two very small no longer then 1/2 an inch green slugish type creatures crawling on the glass. It's almost inpossiable to get a picture of them, but the best way i can describe them is less then half an linch long no thicker then a piece of pencil led (graphite) a small head area...

    I have several of these small grows appear on my LR, and have been there for several weeks. Tank has only been running for 4-5 months. These things are about 1/2" long and look like small pinapples made of some whispy wite thread. These are the best pics I could get. They are open on the...
